Our visit to Alice in Winterland at Lightwater Valley Theme Park by Millie, Daughter and Grand Daughter
On 21 November, Country Hideaways was invited to an exclusive night for the opening of Alice In Winterland at Lightwater Valley, so of course I said that I would like to go too. On our drive up to the car park, through the trees we could see some lovely brightly coloured lights. ‘What are they?’ we all thought. When we went in, one of the first things we saw was a pair of upside-down blue legs in a hole - obviously this was Alice when she falls down the rabbit hole. We looked to our left and there was a giant rabbit lantern, and we hadn't even seen anything compared to what was on its way!
